South Side enforcement blitz brings more citations, arrests
The second weekend of a city crackdown on rowdy nightlife in the South Side resulted in more citations, arrests and vehicles being towed, Pittsburgh police said Monday.
Teams of police officers, fire marshals and towing crews conducting an enforcement ”blitz” in the neighborhood on Friday and Saturday night issued 106 citations, conducted 58 occupancy and fire code inspections at bars, towed 34 vehicles and made eight arrests, police said.
Last Friday and Saturday — the first time the blitz was conducted — enforcement teams arrested 26 people, issued 150 citations, had 76 vehicles towed and inspected 67 bars, police said.
